The newest SeaChordsmen-affiliated quartet, the Post-It Notes, met on Monday for their weekly rehearsal, but this time as a trio. And what does a quartet do during their weekly rehearsal when their lead is out of town? Well, they drill vowels and practice listening for fourths and fifths. Then, they recruit the bass's dad to pitch in on a polecat. Big thanks to Dave for joining in on bass as Paul jumped effortlessly to lead (and to Paul's mom, Cheryl, who beautifully sang lead with us on a few songs, too).
Four Ever Young did a short set at the end of the "Sisters" Edmonds United Methodist Church group quarterly meeting. The Sisters are a long running group at EUMC. They thoroughly enjoyed this harmonious end to their meeting. Four Ever Young is Gary Ackermen, lead, Rod Heivilin, bass, Jim Durand, baritone, and Chris Saether, tenor. Bill Cranston expertly filled in for Jim this time, as he had a scheduling conflict.
This week, Top of the Hill performed at the Ballard Elk's Club, where City Councilman Dan Strauss presented a proclamation designating April 20 as Lois Morgensen Day. Happy birthday, Lois! And way to represent, Top of the Hill!
Another fun afterglow evening - this time our visitor was Amol, who sang a tag with us, and sang along on songs he knew. Here you can see him enjoying the group singing a portion of Rhythm of Love.
If there's anything a group of barbershoppers loves more than singing together, it's singing together for an appreciative audience! We had so much fun last night singing to Gus and Nicole, and they had fun, too, it seemed. We may have even gotten a tear from Nicole at the end of "Moonlight Becomes You" -- check out a snippet of that moment in this video. Thanks for joining us last night, you two!
There were so many of us last night we couldn't even quite get everybody into the group...more
They're at it again - the SeaChordsmen's busiest quartet performed over the weekend at the Ballard Rotary Club. Way to represent, guys!
Every week at afterglow, almost without fail, we sing 1927 Kansas City. It's a SeaChordsmen favorite!
Join us at a chorus rehearsal, and then join us at afterglow! More info HERE.
The Top of the Hill quartet (with Chris standing in for David on tenor) got to perform a (belated) surprise, in-person Singing Valentine at Carkeek Park for Andrew and his wife. The look on her face was priceless. Happy Valentine's, you two!
